The chances of snow in the NE of England are far greater when the wind blows in from the North, North West or North East.
Check the weather coc.k on your local church spire if you've got one. If it's indicating a breeze from the W or S, you'll be okay, no snow.

There's something blowing around in the North Sea and it looks like it might be headed your way possibly snow bearing crap from the Scandiwegian countries by the look of it.
Stay warm. The trick is to wear thin multi layers. Two or three t-shirts, a sweat shirt, a thick work shirt and a heavy sweater over that and on top an anarak with hood and warmlined hat. Mittens are more efficient than gloves, get some and wear two on each fist.
If you must go out in driving snow, wear a pair of goggles. You can get these from your DIY store, the kind we used to keep the dust out of our eyes when drilling etc.
Make up a thermos of hot soup in the morning and drink it through the day. Also, lots of hot tea/coffee/bovril etc.
Other cheap way of keeping warm is to dress up like I've described above and spend the day at the shopping centre if there's one near you. Free warm and lots of chat company etc.
Have a nice one. . .
